Dude, where's my hockey stick?

Of course there is no hockey stick.
Carbon dioxide does not cause the planet to warm up. A rise in carbon dioxide levels appears to be a lagging indicator for the world's temperature, not a leading indicator, but what do I know? I'm neither a historian nor a climatologist. But I do know junk when I see it, don't I? Politics aside, there are many decent, apolitical scientists who believe this junk. As Richard Feynman said: "The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool." Computer models? As Richard Feynman said: "There is a computer disease that anybody who works with computers knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is that you 'play' with them!"
